“Today’s jobs report confirms yet again that Bidenomics is working for Wisconsin families. Wages are up, unemployment is near historic lows, and thousands of good-paying jobs have been created right here in Wisconsin,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Haley McCoy.“Wisconsinites are seeing the difference between President Biden’s record of strengthening our economy by rebuilding the middle class and the previous administration’s history of broken promises, tax handouts to big corporations, and the highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression. Despite MAGA Republicans’ efforts to roll back the progress we’ve made, President Biden, Vice President Harris, Senator Baldwin, and Democrats are continuing to grow the economy from the bottom up and the middle out.”

Here’s a look at how Bidenomics is delivering in Wisconsin and across the country:
